ABSTRACT

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is offering Minority Academic Institutions Graduate Fellowships for master's and doctoral level students in environmentally related fields of study. The deadline for receipt of pre-applications is November 20, 2000. Subject to availability of funding, the Agency plans to award approximately 25 new fellowships. Master's level students may receive support for a maximum of two years. Doctoral students may be supported for a maximum of three years. The fellowship program provides up to $34,000 per year of support. This amount covers a $17,000 annual stipend, $5,000 for authorized expenses, and up to $12,000 for tuition and fees. Actual annual support may vary based on length of fellowship award and tuition and fees.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE MAI PROGRAM

Introduction

The EPA invites pre-applications for graduate fellowships in academic disciplines relating to environmental research including physical, biological, and social sciences and engineering. A pre-application provides the information needed for the review of its merit. Top ranked applicants following the merit review will be required to submit a brief formal application.

These fellowships are intended to help defray costs associated with advanced environmentally oriented study leading to the master's or doctoral degree. Instructions for completing and submitting pre-applications are found in the sections that follow. Instructions must be followed exactly or the submission will not be reviewed.

Purpose of the Program

The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage promising students to obtain advanced degrees and pursue careers in environmentally related fields. This goal is consistent with the mission of EPA, which is to provide leadership in the nation's environmental science, research, education, assessment, restoration, and preservation efforts. Both the public and private sectors will need a steady stream of well-trained environmental specialists if our society is to meet the environmental challenges of the future. 

Eligibility

Applicants must be citizens of the United States or its territories or possessions, or be lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence. Resident aliens must include their green card number in their pre-application. This number may be verified with the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Students do not need to be enrolled in or formally accepted in a full-time graduate program at the time they apply for a fellowship, but proof of enrollment or acceptance must be produced prior to the award of the fellowship. Students must attend a fully accredited four-year U.S. Minority Academic Institution.

Minority Academic Institutions are defined as Historically Black Colleges or Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Tribal Colleges (TCs). See listings at end of this announcement.

Students must be pursuing a master's or doctoral degree in an environmentally related field of specialization (see fields of specialization below). 

Students who have completed more than one year in the master's program or four years in the doctoral program are not eligible. Students enrolled in a master's program, however, may apply for a doctoral fellowship.

Employees of the U.S. government must be able to prove separation from Federal service before accepting this fellowship.

Acceptance of this fellowship does not necessarily preclude acceptance of other scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or grant aid. However, this fellowship may not be awarded to anyone who will simultaneously be receiving other federal assistance.

DESCRIPTION OF A MAI FELLOWSHIP

Tenure

The term of a graduate fellowship is negotiated with students and customarily covers a period of 9 to 12 months for each fellowship year. Students seeking a master's degree may be supported for a maximum of two years. Students seeking doctoral degrees may receive support for a maximum of three years.

Stipend and Allowances

The fellowship provides up to $34,000 per year of support. A maximum of $68,000 will be provided for master's fellows (two years) and up to $102,000 (three years) will be provided to doctoral students. The $34,000 annual support covers stipend, tuition, and expenses as follows:

Stipends: For the 2001-2002 academic year these will be $17,000 for 12-month tenures and prorated monthly at a maximum of $1,417 for shorter periods. Funds for unused months are forfeited. Stipends are paid directly to the Fellow. At its discretion, each fellowship institution may supplement a Fellow's stipend from institutional funds in accordance with the supplementation policy of the institution.

Tuition and Academic Fees: Up to $12,000 per year will be paid directly to the institution. For the purposes of this fellowship, health insurance is not considered to be an academic fee. Health insurance costs may, however, be paid from the expense budget. 

Expense Allowance: Up to $5,000 will be provided to pay for items and activities for the direct benefit of the student's education, such as for health insurance, books, supplies, equipment, travel to technical meetings, and domestic and international travel required to conduct the proposed research. Specific instructions regarding the disbursement and management of the expense allowance will be provided during the award process.

Annual Fellowships Conference

Fellows are expected to attend an annual EPA STAR/MAI Graduate Fellows Conference as long as they are in the program, unless the immediate needs of their research project make attendance impractical. Resources to support this travel are to be taken from the expense allowance. 

International Activities

The fellow's proposed research may be conducted outside the United States. However, EPA allows only $5,000 for all expenses, including travel. See "Stipends and Allowances" for details. If at any time during the research project, it becomes necessary for you to work outside the United States and its territories, you must notify your Project Officer who will obtain the necessary EPA and State Department approval before you can use fellowship funds to conduct these activities. In addition, for travel to international meetings, approval must be obtained from the EPA project officer.

THE MAI FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION PACKAGE

The application package for a MAI Fellowship consists of three major parts: 1) the pre-application, 2) three letters of recommendation, and 3) a self-addressed, stamped postcard. The pre-application provides the reviewers with information about you and your proposed research, the letters provide support for your pre-application, and the postcard allows us to keep you informed about the status of your application. This section provides information you will need to complete each part of the application package.

Top-ranked applicants will be required to submit official copies of transcripts for validation prior to the award of the fellowship.

Letters of Recommendation

Each application package MUST include three reference letters from individuals who have knowledge of your academic record. If you have a sponsor or advisor in the program, one of these letters should come from that individual. EPA is bound by regulation to require three letters. If the pre-application does not include three letters, it will not be reviewed. The original and six (6) copies of each required letter must be contained in an individual envelope sealed by the writer and must be included in the pre-application package. We will not accept reference letters sent separately.

Self-addressed and Stamped Postcard

Include a postcard in your package so that we can notify you that your pre-application was received. If your postcard with the identifying application number is not returned within 30 days of the announcement deadline, you MUST call 1-800-490-9194 to verify that your package was received. If you do not include the postcard, you will not be notified that we received your package.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

All pre-applications must be submitted in the exact format described. All necessary information is provided in the instructions. To illustrate the instructions, a sample pre-application appears at the end of this announcement. Pre-applications must include the original and six copies of each letter of reference enclosed in three individually sealed envelopes, as described above.

EVALUATION AND SELECTION PROCESS

The pre-applications and letters of recommendation will be reviewed by non-EPA experts from the appropriate field of study. Students applying for fellowships must select a Sorting Code from the list provided. Reviewers are recruited based on the specialty fields represented by the pre-applications.

Each student will be evaluated based on his or her potential for success in a graduate study program. The reviewers will consider academic records, recommendations, and career goals and objectives. Students at each educational level will be evaluated based on the information provided in the pre-application as described above under "Mandatory Format for Pre-Applications".

Reviewers will recommend the best applicants from each of the three educational level categories. Finalists will be selected for award of a fellowship based on the availability of funds, reviewers' evaluations, and program goals, such as distribution of awards across disciplines, institutions and geography, degree level being sought, and other possible indicators of program balance. Only finalists will be required to submit the following: 

1. EPA Form 5770-2, "Fellowship Application;"

2. EPA Form 5700-49, "Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, and Other Responsibility Matters;" and

3. Sealed official transcripts from all institutions (if so instructed by EPA).

The necessary forms are available on the NCER homepage (www.epa.gov/ncer/fellow/).

SAMPLE PRE-APPLICATION

The pages that follow constitute a sample pre-application for graduate fellowships.

NOTE!!!! Smart as he is, this hypothetical student probably would NOT receive an EPA fellowship because his curriculum has no obvious relationship to environmental concerns or the disciplinary degree he is seeking. His only chance would be if his narrative statement clearly made that connection. The purpose of this sample is to demonstrate format, not content.
